The Plus Size Models We Are Crushing On This Week

Throughout history, we’ve seen lots of versions of the ‘ideal body’, but now it’s time that we all agree that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and the ideal body is the body you feel comfortable and confident in. However, media keeps rubbing it in our face.

Luckily, the inclusion of plus-size models into the mainstream modeling industry and fashion labels has become a trend since 2015 after Ashley Graham became the first ever plus-size model to be in the front cover of the Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue. Although Ashley was no stranger to the world of modeling for plus-size fashion brands, the magazine cover got her into the spotlight, and she accidentally became an ambassador for all plus-size models.

Her magazine cover contributed to breaking the stereotypes and myths that women who were size 10 or over could not wear cool and mainstream fashion labels or grace major magazine covers unless they were successful actors.

Although ‘thin’ still keeps being the most desirable body type, plus-size fashion is doing great too. And finally, it’s about time to see beauty for what it is and not what we think it should be. So to give you a real perspective on that, check out the plus size models we’re crushing on this week:
